Masters At Work have relaunched their iconic MAW Records and released a new single – their first for 20 years.
A number of classic Masters At Work releases have been specially remastered for the relaunch, including Voices In My Mind by Voices, Bangin’ Early Theme by KenLou and Like A Butterfly (You Send Me), by MAW feat. Patti Austin. Additionally, and perhaps most excitingly for MAW completists, a number of previously unreleased versions of various tracks will also be made available… for those with keen enough eyes and ears to unearth them.
As well as relaunching the catalogue of their label, Masters At Work will also be putting out a brand new single in April – their first in more than 20 years.
Named after an early drum machine that was a favourite of theirs, Mattel employs original sounds from the kit to produced a drum-driven electronic groove, with the percussion solo played live in the studio by Kenny Dope. Louie Vega compliments the beats and percussion solo with a bouncing bassline and hard hitting stabs taking this seven minute and fifty nine second track into the stratosphere.
Mattel marks the start of a run of new material from Masters At Work, with further releases lined up throughout 2021 and into next year.
